The second climb that accesses the Orient valley (the other being the Coll d’Honor). This side is a much easier climb, there are no steep hairpins and the road has been recently resurfaced. It highly recommended that you climb via the rougher Coll d’Honor and descend the Coll d’Orient.
Just over the summit is the beautiful and relaxed village of Orient. There is a cafe/restaurant and a few hotel options around the village.
